Today is Giving Tuesday, and we want to say THANK YOU! We are so grateful to have you in our community - we truly cannot do this work without you!

On Giving Tuesday, we’re calling on you, as a beloved community member, to rally your friends, family, colleagues, and neighbors to support life-saving harm reduction in our communities. Here are 3 quick ways you can help rally support for Southside Harm Reduction today:

  1. Invite people in your circle to match your donation
  2. Re-share our Giving Tuesday post on Instagram and Facebook
  3. Share why you support Southside Harm Reduction

We only have $1,000 left to go to reach our $4,000 fundraising goal, and we can get there with your support!

Whether its $5, $25, or $250, every gift furthers our mission to promote the human rights to health, safety, autonomy, and agency among people who use drugs.

Thank you for your continued support of Southside Harm Reduction!

Between 2017 and 2021, fatal opioid overdoses in Minneapolis increased by 130% from 2017 to 2021. Southside Harm Reduction was founded in 2017 with a goal of providing harm reduction services primarily to the unsheltered, Indigenous community in South Minneapolis, as well as other people who use drugs.

Support Southside's mission to promote the human rights to health, safety, and autonomy of people who use drugs.

Harm reduction saves lives, and your donation directly supports that life-saving work in our communities.

Southside Harm Reduction is the largest syringe exchange program in MN and the only mobile program offering deliveries in the Twin Cities Metro. We serve the community through:

  • Distributing safer drug-use equipment, education, and referrals to care and services via street outreach and on-demand mobile delivery
  • Distributing the opioid overdose antidote naloxone (aka Narcan)
  • Conducting community trainings on naloxone and harm reduction 
  • Advocating for the rights of people who use drugs in Minneapolis
  • Referral to basic-needs services 
  • Rapid HIV testing and connection to services
  • Hazardous waste clean-up

Last year, we distributed 1.2 million syringes, 52,237 doses of naloxone, and trained over 829 people in overdose prevention.
